I'm expecting some major changes in June (local DC center closing, 80 kids displaced along with several teachers and assistants!) and trying to run numbers to figure out what will work financially and sanely (lol if that is a word)

So, for those of you that work by yourself:
How many kids do you have? Their ages?
What hours do you work?


For those that have assistants:
How many kids do you have? Their ages?
What hours do you work?
What hours do they work?

I will answer as by myself because my assistant is only here 3 hours twice a week and her prescence doesn't change what I am allowed.

I have 5 kids ages 3-5. I only do preschool and prek and I am open from 6:30-5 although I run by contracted hours and my first drop off right now is 7am.

I work by myself and am open 7-6. Most days the first dck doesn't show up until 7:40 and the last one usually leaves 5:30/40.

I have 6 kids total-3 full time and 2 part time and I have to include my 1 yo ds.

I have a 5 mo. old, two 1.5 y/o, two 2.5 y/o, and one 3y/o.

So Mon and Fri I have 6 kids, Tues and Wed 4 kids and Thurs. 5 kids. I like having 2 part time kids because it gives me a little break during the week. Plus my two part time kids together, make up a full time spot so it's like I have 4 full time dcks (financially, I make a little more on the 2 p/t kids).
